Leica Camera USA is pleased to announce the second annual Leica Women Foto Project Award, a juried program where three photographers will receive an award to support a personal project relevant to today's social and political climate, as told through the female perspective. The mission of the Leica Women Foto Project is to encourage and empower photographers to demonstrate the importance and impact of a female's point of view. The award serves as a catalyst to re-frame how we see, how we think, and how we express our visual narrative.

Applicants are reviewed on the basis of quality of photography, dedication to the medium of photography, sophistication of project, as expressed through the female perspective with narratives that broaden perspectives, ideas and conversations on today's social climate.

In addition to the financial award ($10,000), each winner will receive a new Leica Q2 to use for the completion of their photographic series onward.

Candidates for the award are requested to submit a series of 10 images from an ongoing personal or long-term project, made on any digital or film camera of any make, model or brand, with at least 4 images created in either 2019 or 2020. Alongside the images, applicants are required to submit a 250 word proposal describing their personal project and its relevance in today's social climate, including detail of how the funds will be allocated.
